The Bishop Peter D. Weaver Mission Scholarship Endowment Fund was
created with gifts from individuals and groups to honor Bishop Weaver for his years of service to the New England Conference. Bishop Weaver served in New England from 2004 until his retirement in 2012.
The scholarships assist New England Conference laity and clergy with travel expenses for mission outreach projects beyond their local community.
The Conference Board of Global Ministries is responsible for reviewing all applications and determining applicants' eligibility as well as the scholarship amount awarded. Scholarships may be up to 50 percent of travel expenses.
Applications are accepted on an ongoing basis, and must be received at least three months prior to your travel dates. Applicants can receive only one scholarship per year.
